It seems some of our favourite former Conservative leaders’ chickens are coming home to roost. What have they been saying about Mr Heath lately?
The former leader of the Conservative Party, Lord Howard of Lympne, is to be questioned by the Serious Fraud Office over the coming days in relation to a criminal investigation into an oil explorer where he is chairman.

They have always had their fingers in many pies. Politicians in general have never gone into politics to serve the people only themselves
They go into politics via the remit that they are helping the public albeit for only a few years in some cases but when the mp ends part of it they have managed to get a good leg up in one of the many businesses that they have supported whilst being an mp
The public overall are to daft to understand about WHAT the REAL aim is of an mp
A mp’s main aim as a mp is to make as many good solid contacts around the world so as to forge a close alliance connection to as many businesses/directorships once the mp has been deselected as a mp
And in a nutshell that is what your average mp is all about and nothing more you the public are just a load of mugs in believing a whole load of nonsense while they look on to their futures gravy train
Ed Miliband (remember him?) wanted to ban MPs from having second jobs or non-Parliamentary pecuniary interests, but he didn’t get elected. This would not stop MPs from making connections with a view to what happens after they leave Parliament, of course.
I’m not meaning second jobs mike I’m just making the observation that mp’s in general and lords are not the real deal and they are not there and have never been there for the public’s benefit or to show concern for them
There in it for themselves only and that’s always been the case
Where I have lived over the past 40 years I have always been the chairman and chief executive of the estate and the only reason for that is because I have undertaking that role for free plus the fact the residents have thought of me as the real deal and voted accordingly in my favor
Had money been involved you can be sure other residents would have wanted to get involved to so call improve things
Well I’m proud to have played this very versatile role over the 6 estates that i have lived in over the past 40 years for free and to have enjoyed the few good friends that I have made along the way and to have made decisions to make sure that all benefited and not the few and overall to have kept costs to a level that’s been acceptable to everyone
Another one bites the dust?
This shouldn’t surprise us at all. These people are so self-centred, greedy and selfish that money in their pockets come before anything else, including morality and legality.
We don’t know that he’s done anything yet.
He’ll be guilty, just like the rest of the real fiddlers of the state are!
Well, we’ll see.
